    Anyone still using CS or CS2? Including InDesign and Illustrator? Or even earlier versions of the individual apps?

    Apparently...

    I also have to pettily note that:

    ;)



    This might also go some way towards explaining the discrepancies I noted in this thread a few weeks ago.

    Thanks for hunting this down. There is also a bit of other version-specific weirdness with the way Pantone values are converted that is with knowing about. (Adobe tech note)

    In what type of situation would this problem rear it's head? I haven't noticed any general problems, wondering what I should be looking for. We've been on CS1 for years. Probably not much longer though.

    Wow that explains a lot why CMYK colors of the logos in my job are accurate while the pantone are slightly off. I never knew this and its sad the issue was never brought out more (design magazines, email, patches) that it lasted this long. Thanks for the post printed this out for good reading.
